Safe In The Cold

Food Safety, Nanoshoot News
Sprouts For A New Generation – or – How I traded in my bell-bottoms and embraced a food safety breakthrough!   BELL BOTTOMS, FLOWER POWER, AND ALFALFA SPROUTS In the 1970’s, the days of bell-bottom denims, flower power, and Woodstock, your traditional alfalfa sprouts were one of the most desirable of the available garnishes and sandwich stuffers.  Imbued with the glow of the counter culture (this ain’t your father’s vegetable) and the promise of being another highly sought after vegetarian food option, sprouts rode a wave of popularity that eventually propelled them to the status of an everyday staple. But oh, how far we can fall once we ascend to the heights.  Despite the public’s subconscious notion that traditional sprouts are grown in Grandma’s garden tended by wood elves, the…

The founder and main contributor, Linda, has been a researcher, chiropractor, and health policy analyst. But her true passion involves food in every way, shape, or form.

Why the Cold Grown Process?

Why the Cold Grown Process?

Food Safety
Discovery of the process The COLD GROWN process came about as the solution to an evident problem. The problem of why and how sprouts are about 1,000 times more likely to cause an outbreak than other fresh produce.   There is a concept in science that says that ‘a problem well defined is 80% solved.’ Dennis Lonergan, Chief Science Officer of Rä Foods LLC, identified that although contaminated seeds were necessary, the level of contamination itself wouldn’t be making anyone sick. The true “problem” was the huge increase in pathogens as sprouts were grown in the traditional method. “From there it was relatively straightforward.” Lonergan Said, “I looked at a number of methods of keeping these pathogens from growing as the sprouts grew.” As most microbiologists know bacteria grow more slowly…

Keepin’ It Vegan with Pizza

Cooking
Five Vegan Pizza Recipes from Keepin' It Kind Kristy Turner’s Los Angeles-based blog, Keepin’ It Kind, proves that being vegan is not analogous to sacrificing flavor. Instead, Kristy shows just how tasty veganism can be. Initially a vegetarian, Kristy eventually transitioned to full-vegan. She shares on her blog how it all began as a two-week test to see if changing to a plant-based diet could really make that much of a difference. While Kristy’s aversion to meat started early on, her avoidance of dairy evolved later. Formerly a fromagier, Kristy explains how her decision to adopt a vegan lifestyle occurred only after she began to educate herself more on the practices used on animals. In the My Vegan Journey section on her website, Kristy details how she successfully made the…
